Organizing Outside the Box

Just finished reading "Organizing Outside the Box" by Helen Buttigieg.  You may be familiar with Helen from the Canadian television show "Neat," whjch is still being broadcast in certain areas. On the television show "Neat" she comes in to a home, helps the owner get rid of all the junk and things they don't love, and then she cleans and organizes what is left.

This book talks about conquering clutter using your natural learning style.  There is a quiz included which I took and determined I am a "Visual" learner.  (Here's a link to where you can take the quiz online.)   It includes some tips on organizing using my learning style, which I can't wait to implement.

I definitely recommend this book and look forward to getting started and sharing what I've learned!

Happy New Year!

A beautiful new year has begun and it’s time for a clean, fresh start!  Love the feeling of setting goals, organizing and clearing the slate for a wonderful future and new beginning.

Hope you enjoy one of my favorite sayings ...

Happy New Year!

May, already?

It's another beautiful day, but just can't believe it is already May.  My sweet son comes homes from his first year of college soon.  He is doing so well and we are so incredibly proud of him!

Happy Monday!

Had another great weekend with my son in Charlotte. It's always such a joy to see his sweet smiling face. I'm one blessed mother!

Had my weekly weigh-in this morning and was up .2 of a pound. I'm not depressed at all (highly unusual for impatient me) because I know I did pretty well food wise. I'm just thinking of this morning as a clean slate and hopefully next week I'll have a good weight loss to report! One thing I'm fairly sure of is that I lose better when I do the low carb type things, concentrating on protein and veggies (things I don't like). This week I ate way too many of those Popchips, vitalicious treats, and other Weight Watcher sweet cake type snackies (things I do like). Oh well ... at least I stuck with the program and didn't gain a ton of weight like I was doing just about a month ago.
